Praise us or pan us, but just put it down in words. Bravos or boos, we want to hear from you.

OUR SOCIAL FABRIC

I’m surprised (and disappointed) that our region falls considerably below the 8 percent immigration rate, lower than the national average of 13 percent (“Detroit’s Changing Social Fabric,” July 2014). A lot of enlightening information here. Thanks!

// Well-conceived, balanced, and thoughtful in looking at this issue from its historical perspective.

SLAVE LABOR

This is a well-researched, well-written article about how people are enslaved (“Forced Labor,” July 2014). Remember, too, that there are sex slaves right here in the Detroit suburbs. Theresa Flores was blackmailed by a pimp and trafficked for years from her Birmingham home (her book on her experiences is titled The Slave Across the Street ). To read more, check out michiganabolitionistproject.org or commongroundhelps.org.

SCOTTY'S RULES!

Thanks for the article on Scotty Simpson’s (“Stellar Survivor,” June 2014). My mom and dad started taking us there in the middle ’60s when we lived about ½ mile north of the restaurant. We all remember the Friday night carryout order wrapped in white paper with the grease seeping though. It did not take long to hook my kids. This is one of those rare occasions when you are happy that NOTHING has changed.

MORE HAPPY WINNERS

We are thrilled we were voted best locally owned bakery in the suburbs (“Best of Detroit,” June 2014)! This would not have been possible without the support of our wonderful loyal customers. You guys voted and your voice was heard! Thank you!

// Rio & The Rockabilly Revival was voted the Best Original Band. Thrilled! Thank you! I have always loved Hour … to be included in this edition is beyond.

GET ON THE BUS

The Detroit Bus Co. is featured in this month’s Hour Detroit (July 2014), proving that (1) Andy Didorosi may have more than one shirt but it is still black and red flannel, and (2) Mickey Lyons makes it look easy, whether it’s posing for glossies or working, working, working. Even at the bar.
